Adventures in amateur photography
Category Archives: Weather
Well, you’d think living in Connecticut the worst natural occurance/disaster I’d have to worry about would be snowstorms.
Instead, over the past week we’ve gotten to experience the fun of earthquakes and hurricanes (okay, so the earthquake up this far was just a little rocking of my chair, but it was still the first time I’d ever experienced an earthquake).
Hurricane Irene has been the big news story for the past week or so up here, from when the track started putting it in Connecticut, to the actual storm, and now on to the aftermath.
We were okay, never lost power, didn’t have extensive flooding, just a lot of rain and wind. Other parts of Connecticut, even across town, weren’t so lucky.
I’ll be getting back to my normal photos soon, but for now, here’s some of the Irene aftermath in Torrington, Connecticut.
As promised, here are the rest of my non-fire photos from over the weekend, a combination of goats, trees, and beach rocks.
There haven’t been many great photo opportunities lately, so I’ve been experimenting with what I can capture on my camera a bit, as well as with editing photos with GIMP.
Yep, I’m still playing around with my newfound love of macro shots. I’ve got a few clouds to throw into the mix this time, though.
